Deep frozen Logistics for regenerative medicine (clinical trial products)

Mitsubishi Logistics supports supply chains for regenerative medicine (clinical trial products) and other products that require strict ultra low temperature control.

Customers' issues and situations

  • We want somebody to store sample cells that require strict ultra low temperature control for long periods of time.
  • We want to build a supply chain system for clinical trial products that require strict ultra low temperature control.
  • Because they are genetically modified products regulated under the Cartagena Act, we want to outsource them to a logistics company that has a management system that takes diffusion prevention measures.
  • Since transportation arises due to the physical condition of the examinee, we want to outsource them to a logistics company that supports emergency delivery.
  • We also want the company to support a supply chain system for the products after they are placed on the market.
